  • What's up everyone! Welcome back to my channel.

  • First of all, Happy Fucking New Year!

  • Now, this weekend I am going to upload my favorite beauty products

  • and my least favorite beauty products of 2016.

  • But I thought, you know what, let's start the new year off with a bang

  • and try out some crazy ass shit.

  • So, today I'm going to be trying a $12 primer against a $140 primer.

  • Yes, some brand thought they were slick enough to price a motherfucking primer that much.

  • So, I'm like, I think we should just dive right into it and if you want to see

  • what the hell these make-up brands are fucking up to, then keep on watching.

  • One of my favorite beauty sites is beautylish.com. Now they are one of my official retailers.

  • They ship worldwide and they have a bunch of amazing brands

  • like Anastasia, Sugarpill, Charlotte Tilbury, Natasha Denona.

  • They have a bunch of brands and I love shopping on their website.

  • I know that sounds like a shameless plug but I just, you know, I mean, come on,

  • if there's a website with good ass skincare and crazy make-up, you know my bitch ass is gonna be there.

  • So, I was scrolling through the website the other day and one of these brands, it's called BY TERRY,

  • they have a lot of expensive skincare and concealers and foundations so, I just bought a bunch of stuff,

  • but while I was browsing they have a new limited edition $140 primer.

  • I'm like,

  • girl, what in the hell is in here to make it that price point?

  • So, you know my bougie bitch ass, had to pick this up.

  • So, I'm going to do a little battle of the primers today.

  • I'm going to do one half of my face in the $140 and the other side, a $12 primer.

  • So, I went on Twitter, literally just a few minutes ago,

  • and I tweeted, "What's everyone's favorite drugstore primer?"

  • And I was literally on the way to Rite Aid. And if you don't know what Rite Aid is,

  • it is like a Walgreens, a CVS, type of drugstore here on the West Coast.

  • Do they have Rite Aid on the East Coast? I don't even know.

  • So, I asked everybody what I should get and you guys sent me so many recommendations,

  • like, oh my God, it was thousands and thousands of tweets.

  • And I picked up a few and one that you guys kept sending me was the L’Or?al Magic Perfecting Base.

  • I'm like, ooh, okay, a little pink black carton. By the way, you guys should know by now

  • that the Bobby Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base is one of my tried and true for a long time.

  • And it reminded me of this because it looked like a mini version but by another brand.

  • So, I was definitely attracted to it. You guys were like going off, like you've got to go get that one.

  • So, I am going to put these to the test.

  • Now, I've never opened either of these before. I've never even tried them.

  • So, my skin right now is bare.

  • But, if you do notice along my lash line and maybe on my forehead and hairline

  • I still have bits of glitter from my full face using only glitter challenge,

  • which, I'm actually not mad at, because I'm looking in the viewfinder,

  • I'm like, oh, hi, lid, like, it's in my lashes. This shit is not coming out.

  • So, probably another month or two, maybe they'll float away.

  • But, yes, for everyone wondering, there's still glitter everywhere.

  • In my beauty room, the whole floor, help me.

  • Now, I am going to go over the L’Or?al one first. Now, this one was $12.99.

  • Now, this Magic Perfecting Base is supposed to, obviously, be a make-up primer.

  • It says, you can put under your eyes to smooth fine lines.

  • Okay. It says that, it's going to hide pores. It's going to vanish imperfections.

  • I'm like, okay girl, grrr.

  • It is silky, lightweight, it glides onto your skin leaving a velvety smooth to the touch feeling.

  • It is suitable for all skin types. It is demagogically tested and, okay, great.

  • It's time to open this up and see what she looks like.

  • So, the L’Or?al one comes in a little glass pot like this.

  • It feels glass. Is that plastic? Maybe it's hard plastic. Feels kinda....

  • So, it says, put this to use under any foundation.

  • I also forgot to mention that after I do both sides of my face,

  • I am going to use one foundation with a beauty blender and do my entire face

  • so we can tell, or see, if there's a difference.

  • Alright, so, back to the primer. This one has 0.5 fluid ounces in it.

  • The other one has 1.01 fluid ounces.

  • So, it is basically double the size. We'll unbox this in a second.

  • I am going to see if there's a fragrance.

  • Huh, not really, I'm going to touch it with my nail real quickly, like,

  • I'm just going to put it on the back of my hand.

  • Oh wow, it's like, very tacky. Holy, okay, ooh, that feels cool.

  • I'm like, oh my God. If feels very velvety. Okay packaging, you weren't lying.

  • Well, we'll see in a minute on my face.

  • Alright, I just used a little Burt's Bees make-up wipe to wipe that primer off my hands.

  • And now we're going to inboxinboxwere going to embalm

  • were unbox the BY TERRY primer. Now, this, why is it a (inaudible) you guys like,

  • expensive packaging, like draws me in, I'm like, hi, hi, hi.

  • Alright, so, this is called the Elixir De Perle.

  • It says a premier illuminating concentrate.

  • Alright, so, besides being limited edition this is a youthful radiance elixir.

  • This true premium concentrate luminosity, infused with precious fresh water pearls

  • and multi-reflection pigments reveals a perfecting ultra-smoothing rosy peaked pearlescent glow.

  • Fuck, that was a mouthful. I'm like I need to come up for some air.

  • Okay, so this is supposed to be used underneath your make-up.

  • So, let's take her out. The packaging's gorgeous, I just have to keep saying that. I'm like, hi.

  • Ooh, okay, so this is what she looks like. It comes in a glass jar as well.

  • Of course, as I mentioned, it is double the size as the L’Or?al one.

  • Now, it also comes with a little spatula, as a lot of high-end expensive skincare stuff does.

  • It basically is like for sanitary reasons, you kind of scoop it out with this instead of touching with your nails or fingers.

  • Okay, so this one has a little plastic,

  • I like to call it, the like, sanitary screen that you remove to get into there.

  • Ooh, okay, this one smells really fresh. It's kind of like, it just smells fresh.

  • Is that such a weird thing to say? It smells like floral sunscreen, kind of mixture.

  • Alright, let's get this hair back, let's get these curls fucking out of my way.

  • Okay, so, my right, which will be over here,

  • I'm going to do the L’Oreal drugstore primer. So, let's start.

  • And I'm going to stop right here. I'm literally going to go all the way up like the face and only do this side.

  • Okay, so already, I can tell that my face looks kind of blended, it really does.

  • Not going to lie. I'm like, okay, right.

  • Now, a little went a long way. I used two little nail scoops and she's laid.

  • Alright, now for the left side of my face I'm going to use the spatula.

  • Is this enough? We will see in a second.

  • I'm only going to use my left hand because the right side is tainted and I'm just going to dip this one around.

  • Now, don't try to say that I'm using more on this side because I'm definitely not.

  • I'm just spreading it with this because that's what it told me to do.

  • Alright, that side is on. Bam! Is there a difference?

  • Let's zoom in and take a look.

  • Okay, this side, you can see, is kind of like, definitely luminous.

  • It feels a little tacky as well, but in a different, almost like, not sticky.

  • I hate that word, because that sounds like, negative.

  • But it feels a little, like, come on foundation, work.

  • And then this one feels a little, oh, this feels nice, okay.

  • Now, only difference I'm noticing is that the BY TERRY one,

  • it's not a blurring one, it didn't claim to be, so it definitely did not blur.

  • I see a little shimmer over my skin, kind of living for that, because you guys know I'm a glowy ass bitch.

  • Alright, I guess, let's put these to the test and see which one makes our foundation look sickening.

  • So, I'm going to go in with one of my favorite foundations of all time. The Armani Luminous Silk, oh my God,

  • I mean, how many years have I been wearing this by now you all should know, this is one of the motherfucking best!

  • So, we are going to put her to the test, since I always use this,

  • I will definitely be able to tell a difference right away.

  • So, I'm going to use a damp beauty blender and just do a few pumps

  • and coat my entire face. So, let's see what happens.

  • Okay guys, let's bounce.

  • Alright, so I think it's only fair that we zoom in a little bit and see what the hell is going on.

  • Alright, so, let me zoom in on myself.

  • Let me zoom in with a mirror and let's see if there is any differences.

  • No, I'm not shocked but the mattifying side looks a little drier and

  • I don't want to say patchy, but like a little, just not like as amazing, I guess, as this side.

  • This side looks really, oh my God, looks stunning.

  • This side's not awful actually at all.

  • In the area that I really don't like my pores around here, if definitely minimized them.

  • Under the eyes looks pretty.

  • But yes, my fine lines are a little bit there. And on this side, the L’Or?al side,

  • there is zero fine lines so, hey, yes God.

  • Yeah, this side actually looks a little more hydrating though, which, I mean, give or take, right?

  • So, I'm going to do a little turn. A little side to side. Here is the $12 primer

  • and here is the $140 primer side.

  • Now I definitely think that the more luxurious primer, I look a little more hydrated.

  • A little more, like, I don't know, a little more cunt, a little more summery, a little more fresh.

  • The other side is definitely very matte and I actually like it.

  • And I think, honestly, for the price point, this one is awesome because

  • all you have to do is really add a little bit more moisturizer before you put this on.

  • Or even mix, like, I kind of want to do for a next video, just on a tutorial,

  • is to put this first and then this and see what happens. I'm kind of curious to do that.

  • So, I guess, let's give our final thoughts and our final review.

  • Okay, so I did not expect this to happen, you guys. I am torn.

  • Like, oh, I'm like, I'm kind of mad, I'm like, okay, is the BY TERRY Primer Jeffree Star approved

  • or is the L’Or?al Magic Perfecting Base Jeffree Star approved.

  • I'm going to shock you all. Drum roll.

  • They're both Jeffree Star approved primers. There was not a lot of cons really for either.

  • They both looked great. I'm just looking back and forth.

  • I don't know, I mean, maybe because it's the first time I've used both of them, I'm not, like, in love dying.

  • I think they definitely need a few more tests under other foundations and in tutorials

  • to see how they are going to, you know, of course, wear and tear throughout the day, you guys.

  • But yeah, I'm like shocked here. I'm a little confused. I don't hate either one of them.

  • I'm like, sorry guys, today they're kind of both approved.

  • So, hey. I wish there was more excitement. I wish one of them flopped really hard, because I am shocked.

  • But, shout out to both brands. I think these are definitely fun.

  • Now, of course, you guys all know, this one, I know a lot of you are going to roll your eyes, like,

  • Bitch, that was not good enough for $140

  • and I'm not actually mad at you because I kind of agree with you.

  • But it was fun to try and I'm definitely going to be wearing it under future tutorials

  • and future looks and see how it compares to my favorite gold primer and everything else.

  • Alright, I think that is it. Fuck, I don't want to leave you guys.
